Luis Ortiz vs Dave Allen will be the highly touted Cuban heavyweight’s first fight in the UK under new promoters Matchroom Sport.
Ortiz didn’t have the best of debuts for his new promoters recently in Monaco when he outpointed American Malik Scott over a labored 12 round points decision.
However Allen’s come forward style might allow for a better fight to watch for fans this time around.
The news of Ortiz’s speculated next fight opponent was made official that Ortiz and Allen will clash on the undercard of Joshua’s December 10th undercard in Manchester:

Fans will be hoping for a better display from Ortiz this time around who as many know in the sport, possess immense talent when he is on form.
A potential showdown with fellow stablemate Anthony Joshua has been mooted for 2017 but ‘King Kong’ will need to get through the always tough Dave Allen first, if he is to realize any world title dreams next year.
‘The White Rhino’ has promised to bring the fight on December 10th and had this to say to previous Ortiz’s foe Malik Scott on Twitter:
I don’t know how to run I just know how too fight, I think your a very skilled fighter Malik but I will bring the heart and want to fight https://t.co/EdM3ctrbEM
